Understand your DIRECTV programming commitment

Learn about the length of your DIRECTV programming commitment and potential early termination fees.


About your DIRECTV programming commitment

We offer discounts on service, equipment, and installation in exchange for 12- to 24-month programming commitments.
  • If you're new to DIRECTV, your 24-month programming commitment starts when you accept and activate service. 
  • If you already have DIRECTV service, you may enter a new 12- or 24-month commitment when you upgrade equipment, move your service to a new address, or accept certain promotions. 
  • If you voluntarily suspend your service, your programming commitment is paused while your service is suspended. 
  • If you cancel DIRECTV service early or don't maintain the minimum requirements, we may charge an Early Termination Fee of up to $20 for each month left in your commitment. 

Heads up: You can find additional details in the DIRECTV Equipment Lease Agreement.
